Table n1 @ The Waterhouse, Shanghai, China

Hello Shanghairen!

Head to the south of the Bund to explore the unexplored.

“The Cool Docks” is Shanghai self-proclaimed latest trendy district where are located the Waterhouse Hotel and Table n1.

Table n1, by the British Chef Jason Atherton, is set in a bare yet modern dining room with large windows and a subdued atmosphere. Large tables, that you will share if you book for more than two people, manage to give the venue a convivial yet intimate touch.

The service is quick and discreet, with waiters anticipating your every wish; a quality to treasure in China.

The food is innovative and delicious, served in an elegant manner. Special mention to the sauce served on the side and to the mashed potatoes in the pan. The portions are big and there is no need to add sides to the main dishes. After the main, despite being stuffed, I could not have missed the desserts and opted for the Mille-feuille, which will literally turn your head over.
The small surprise arrived with the espresso: a homemade banana lollipop, which sparks in your mouth.

As a whole, Table n1 will impress people looking for new places and seeking something more original than the usual French or Italian restaurants abounding in the city. Not ruining anything, it is still a hidden and confidential gem in the Shanghai dinner scene. To be highly appreciated and without moderation.

Head to the terrace at the end of the dinner to share a few drinks while admiring the view on the Huangpu river.
